Hi everyone! We have a new AOL client beta available and we welcome input. We actually beg for input! However, you should know that this one is different from AOL Desktop in that it is based off a "Classic" view. (Read "Classic" as waol.exe style experience.)
Please consider taking a look. Click HERE to start the download process.

The AOL Desktop Client team is pleased to announce the release of AOL Classic Beta.
In this latest beta release of AOL's 9.x family of all-in-one internet software, you'll find a significant new feature - tabbed browsing. We've been asked by many of you to add this, as it really makes web browsing more convenient than ever before.
While this release focuses on adoption of tabbed browsing, we're also performing a fare bit of housecleaning on the menus, with much of this effort to more accurately reflect our current AOL product catalog; along with removing several redundant items.
System requirements for AOL Classic beta
* Windows Vista, XP
* Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher
* 166 MHz Pentium-class processor or higher
* 128MB RAM, 460MB free disk space
* 28.8 Kbps or faster modem, or other Internet connection
This will be a short development cycle, so as we're fast approaching the release date, we really encourage you to use the software actively and in this beta, to focus on exercising the tabbed browsing experience. As always, we want you to use the Feedback form to report issues you find.
Since this beta will coexist along side your current AOL client, please make sure you to launch the beta application when testing as much as possible.
